Re: Error message: invalid editor anchoring

Thanks for the reply. I had assumed this was a newbie mistake and that
someone would recognize problem off the top of their head. Here's some
more info

Using fresh install of Subversion v1.0.0 under Win XP. Server and
client running on the same machine. Here's a copy&paste transcript
where I did an svn ls on the URL in question and then used the
commandline editor to change the ls to a switch:

C:\Documents and Settings\Mighty\My Documents\JCI\Tests\Simple menus>svn
ls "svn://localhost/Tests/branches/Simple%20menus/v00_00/"
assets/
index.htm

C:\Documents and Settings\Mighty\My Documents\JCI\Tests\Simple menus>svn
switch "svn://localhost/Tests/branches/Simple%20menus/v00_00/"
svn: Invalid editor anchoring; at least one of the input paths is not a
directory and there was no source entry

I noticed a line in the release notes for v1.0.1 about some unspecified
problem with spaces in a URL. I'll try to upgrade and see if the same
thing keeps happening.
